1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare by James Shapiro

This book is hard to categorize, but so lovely and fun for the literary/history nerd. We’ll never know much about Shakespeare’s life, so Shapiro instead focuses on the events we know occurred during one of his most prolific years. Showing how those events likely influenced the content of Shakespeare’s plays opens up a whole new way of thinking about art and history. - Jocelyn
